Cuming[edit]

Hi Nick, unless you had a burning desire to write it first, Cuming is on my long list of RAAF bios, mainly given he has an entry in Stephens & Isaacs' High Fliers (always a help). Also, somewhere in my personal collection I have a colour shot of that Canberra at Amberley's gate from a visit years ago -- if I ever manage to dig it out it might be worth installing here.

Thanks Ian; I wasn't planning on writing the article on Cuming, though he seems to have had an interesting career. The photo of A84-201 would be great, though I guess non-essential as there's a photo of the aircraft as it appeared during the race. Nick-D (talk) 02:28, 29 May 2011 (UTC)
